LightEdge’s Flex Cloud offers a practical approach for businesses to migrate existing IT infrastructure to the LightEdge private cloud at a pace that fits their financial and operational needs. This flexible path to data center migration helps companies maximize current equipment investments and assets while enhancing performance and capacity. Flex Cloud eventually replaces the infrastructure components that are nearing end-of-life or becoming obsolete, creating a natural path to the LightEdge Cloud.
Flex Cloud enables transition away from capital investment cycles by providing options regarding how, when and what to migrate to the LightEdge Cloud. We like to refer to it as BYOC (Bring Your Own Components). LightEdge will fill in the blanks by providing the processes and products that businesses don’t have access to on their own, and making cloud migration a comfortable, accessible reality.
What Does Flex Cloud Solve?
Capex buying and refresh cycles
Operational constraints driven by control concerns around security
Burst processing of peak workloads
Who is Flex Cloud right for?
Flex Cloud is the perfect solution for businesses with a procurement cycle for IT infrastructure where the investment in physical IT components prevents them moving to a cloud alternative. It is also ideal for businesses that want to bring their new, better components into a data center and responsibly take the steps toward moving to the private cloud.
